Innovation & Excitement

I have recently completed my Bachelor of Architecture at Victoria University of Wellington. Throughout the last few years I have discovered my passion for design and desire to push the limit. I love to represent the subject in a witty, unexpected and satisfying manner, always aiming to transform the content through different perspectives.


Every new test, experiment and project should be exciting from start to finish, expressing a continuous stream of innovation and imagination. I particularly enjoy the concept and development processes of design - using research, analysis and originality to create something unique.

READY OR NOT

This poster is my favorite piece, and was an adventure from start to finish. It helped broaden my perspective on design and physical limitations. A story about an awe-inspiring event was fabricated, and responded to challenges that a group of people would face in a totally different, unfamiliar world. This was the finale to several projects, ending in Adaptive Response.
